Official FLC Team Clothing Store Now Open

Happy Summer! Hope all is going well.Kit Template

The clothing order is now open.

Please take the time to follow the instructions below carefully and make sure you have paid for your items or they will not be produced/shipped.

It is also a good time to order additional items for cooler/cold/wet weather.

Remember – the jersey design will change for 2017-18 so if a new member maybe just get a jersey because all will be required to purchase new when design changes. It only happens every four years.

THE CLOSING DATE IS THURSDAY JULY 21  AT 10PM MST. The order should arrive the weekend before the Fall term begins and will be in the Cycling Office

Please read carefully below for purchasing instructions.

Here is the beta:

The FLC designs are available on any product you see in the store, from jerseys/jackets/vests to fleece bib knickers to arm warmers and gloves to casual gear, etc. Some of the more random accessories may have a minimum number ordered to be produced but any top or bottom will be made in time for the season. You can choose the $63.25 the standard jersey – CS Tech  (just don’t do the club cut and the sleeveless won’t work for collegiate racing (usacycling rule)) to the $169 Razor Carbon version that is as high as tech gets. I have  the $71.19 AirLite  Short Sleeve jersey and it is great for riding when it is warmer or when racing.

It is also highly recommended to get at least one pair of bibs/shorts and you even have a choice of Chamois, get the Veloce or Women’s specific! Unless you have a load of shorts/bibs without sponsors on them  (collegiate rule) then you should get a pair – there are often two or more races per weekend and sometimes washing is impossible.

I have tried on many of their items and sizing is fairly standard – since I (5’10”, 150lbs) am a MTBer I’ll get a Medium jersey – if I were primarily a roadie I’d get a Small and since I have chicken legs I’ll be getting Small bibs. Hey Ladies! – The new Donna line of jerseys and shorts are women specific! If you want to get all techy on sizing you can check out the charts: http://champ-sys.com/master-size-charts/

For all of you new members – if you come from warmer climates you should definitely get some cool/cold weather garments i.e. Jackets (insulated and water repellant, thermal/fleece warmers, knickers or tights, shoe covers, gloves.

For all of you TRACKies, CXers, TTers, and CRITers – you should definitely get your own skin suit!

The 3rd and 4th templates are for high end women specific jerseys if interested.

The next 3 templates are vests, jackets, mock turtlenecks – remember if coming from warmer climates you will need an insulated, maybe rain proof jacket for cold morning starts and winter training.

The 1st shorts and bibs template has all the options. CS Bib Short is standard and get veloce or women’s chamois. The 2nd, 3rd and 4th shorts and bib templates are repetitive.

Tights and knickers – self explanatory.

Announcing the 2016 Road Nationals Team

The FLC Cycling Team has just finished the Rocky Mountain _A060548Collegiate Cycling Conference (RMCCC) road racing season at Colorado Mesa University and has put together the team that’ll represent Fort Lewis College at USA Cycling Collegiate Road Nationals May 13-15 in Asheville, NC, the second year in a row the championships have been held there.

The Cycling Skyhawks finished second as a team to the University of_A060079 Colorado Boulder in the final RMCCC Division 1 standings after 4 weekends of racing. “Our conference season was a strange one with three cancelled weekends of racing on the front range because of weather. We adapted by doing some inter-squad racing, made it to a demanding USA Cycling race in Utah and practiced our Team Time Trial quite a bit. We worked well together as a team during the season and are quite confident that we’ll see some stellar performances in Asheville.” said FLC Cycling Road Coach, Ian Burnett.

The FLC Cycling staff has spent most of the last 48 hours mulling over this season results, past results and the character of the large pool possible student athletes to represent. The following student _A060345athletes will compete in the Individual Time Trial (ITT), Team Time Trial (TTT), Criterium(CR) and Road Race (RR) in and around Asheville. The ITT does not count toward the elusive overall team omnium, but may in the future. The team will be looking for some redemption from last year after being stifled by the heat and some bad luck. “Picking a Nationals Team out of so many deserving riders is one of the toughest parts of the job but I think we did a great job of picking riders best suited to the courses and conditions while also working well as a team. We have many riders returning from last year’s squad and boy, we are going to miss our seniors next year, but have some very strong underclassmen, too”, said Coach Burnett, “things have been coming together for the team this Spring and if the breaks go our way we have a good shot at the team title.”

Skyhawks Ready to Roll in Asheville

Team-Relay-TeamSeeking their 23rd national title, Fort Lewis College Cycling heads to Asheville, NC January 5th-11th to contest the 2016 USA Cycling Collegiate National Championships of Cyclocross (CX). The Skyhawks will start competition Friday the 8th at 10am with the Division 1 Men’s race, then at 1:20pm the Division 1 Women race. The main objective- the Team Omnium title where each collegiate race is scored then totaled to determine the overall team points leader.

Then on Saturday at 10:45am, the very important Collegiate 4×4 Team Relay that counts towards the Team Omnium takes place. The relay pits 1 rider from each 3-4 person team doing one lap of the ~2 mile course all out with females completing at least 2 laps to determine the fastest team. The Skyhawks finished 2nd in last years Relay.

Fort Lewis has won two CX national championships in the past, 19 x D1 Mountain Bike, 1 x D2 Road title and had many individual National Champions in all disciplines.

Sofia Gomez Villafane returns as the Skyhawks top female CX racer. She had a disappointing 2015 Collegiate D1 race in Austin, TX and is looking to return to the podium, if not the top step. On the Men’s side the ‘Hawks are deep, with 6 returning members of last year’s CX Nats squad. Seniors Cody Cupp, Kolben Preble and Payson McElveen have been riding very well of late and Sophomore Ian McPherson has a podium spot well within his sights.

Skyhawk Cycling Names MTB Nationals Team

The Fort Lewis College Cycling Team has chosen the squad that will Randy Manualrepresent the Skyhawks at the upcoming 2015 USA Cycling Collegiate Mountain Bike Nationals in Snowshoe, WV Oct. 23-25.  The team will be seeking to regain the Team Overall title after relinquishing it last year for the first time in 9 years to CU Boulder. Choosing a team to represent the Skyhawks are some of the toughest decisions that coaches (Nick Gould, Elke Brutsaert, Lucas LeMaire, Phil Cowan and Brittany Clawson) ever have to make simply because there are so many talented riders to choose from.
Last weekend in Angel Fire, NM at Adams State’s home meet he Skyhawks won the Division 1 Rocky Mountain Collegiate Cycling Conference (RMCCC) team overall title, endurance racer Stephan Davoust won the Men’s A title and the Skyhawks had many individual podiums, both men and women, in the series overall rankingsFLC Cycling won the title over strong teams from the University of Colorado, Colorado State University and Colorado Mesa University Having such good competition in the RMCCC is great preparation for the National competitions against not only top teams for the RMCCC but teams from perennial national powerhouses Marian University, Lees McRae College and Lindsay Wilson College.
At Nationals FLC will compete in Gravity events –  Downhill (DH) and Dual Slalom (DS) and Endurance events, Cross Country (XC) and Short Track XC (ST). Team Relay (TR) is a fun that Pis teams of 4 riders from each school with a female rider having to do at least 2 laps and does count in the team omnium standings. Each Collegaite team is allowed to bring 10 riders of each gender to compete in these events. Some riders are very adept at both Gravity and Endurance and will be competing in both disciplines in search of an Individual Omnium (IO) title. The Skyhawk’s lone defending individual champion is Sofia Gomez Villafane in the Female Individual Omnium.
There are a few ways to keep up with the team before and during the competitions. The teams blog site will have daily pictures and updates at http://cycling.fortlewis.edu, on Facebook by liking http://www.facebook.com/FLCCyclingTeam or following on Twitter and Instagram @FLCCYCLING.

Local Cyclist Brennan Buiso Receives Stan Rabbe Cycling Scholarship

The Fort Lewis College Foundation and the Fort Lewis College 11231798_10152949221460028_1211368239690678844_nCycling Team are proud to announce Brennan Buiso as the first recipient of the Stan Rabbe Memorial Cycling Scholarship for the 2015-16 academic year.

Mr. Rabbe passed away on January 21, 2015, of complications from Alzheimer’s Disease, at the age of 65.  He was an avid cyclist and runner and influenced many youths in Durango as a Middle/High School teacher, coach and counselor from 1984 until his retirement in 2002.  It was his wish that a scholarship fund be set up for local cyclists attending Fort Lewis College while competing for the Cycling Team.

Brennan Buiso is a Durango local going into his Senior year at Fort Lewis College majoring in Business Administration.  Brennan grew up racing BMX in Durango while also competing in bigger regional and national races. He joined FLC Cycling when BMX was added as a Collegiate cycling discipline in 2013 as a committed athlete and student. At the 2015 USA Cycling Collegiate BMX National Championships Brennan earned FLC’s best ever finish in the Division 1 Men’s race with a 10th place finish in a field of many Olympic hopefuls.

Brennan will serve as the lead pacer of  “Stan the Marathon Man’s Alzheimer’s 5K Walk/Run” to benefit the Durango Alzheimer’s Association, which is scheduled for Saturday August 15th, 2015 at Santa Rita Park in Durango at 9am.  For more information and to register: Click Here

The Stan Rabbe Cycling Scholarship is an endowed scholarship in the FLC Foundation and the Stan Rabbe Memorial 5K run on August 15th raises funds for the Athletes to End Alzheimer’s Scholarship at Fort Lewis College.

Cycling Skyhawks Announce Road Nationals Team

The FLC Cycling Team has just finished the Rocky Mountain IMG_3106Collegiate Cycling Conference (RMCCC) road racing season at Colorado Mesa University and has put together the team that’ll represent Fort Lewis College at USA Cycling Collegiate Road Nationals May 8-10 in Asheville, NC.

The Cycling Skyhawks finished second as a team to the University of Colorado Boulder in the final RMCCC Division 1 standings after 6 weekends of racing. “Our conference is very tough and has given us great preparation for Nationals,” says FLC Cycling Road Coach, Ian Burnett.

The FLC Cycling staff has spent most of the last 48 hours mulling over this season results, past results and the character of the large pool possible student athletes to represent. The following student athletes will compete in the Team Time Trial, Criterium and Road Race in and around Asheville, which is also the site for the 2016 Collegiate Road Natioanls. They will be looking to defend the Men’s Road Race and Team Time Trial titles they won last year in Richmond, VA. “Picking a Nationals Team out of so many deserving riders is one of the toughest parts of the job but I think we did a great job of picking riders best suited to the courses while also working well as a team”, said Coach Burnett, “things have been coming together for the team this Spring and if the breaks go our way we have a good shot at the team title.”

Director Dave Hagen and his bunch of Durango shredders.

The Fort Lewis College Cycling Team will hold its annual Squawker Classic road racing events Saturday March 28th and Sunday the 29th.  Collegiate cyclists from the Rocky Mountain Collegiate Cycling Conference (RMCCC) will descend upon Durango for one of the toughest weekends of racing before USA Cycling Collegiate Road Nationals in Asheville, NC May 8-10. It is the 4th RMCCC conference race weekend of the spring season offering up a Team Time Trial, Criterium and a Road Circuit race for Division 1 archrivals University of Colorado-Boulder and Colorado State University and Division 2 powerhouse Colorado Mesa University. There is also USA Cycling category racing for locals to participate in.

The action will begin 8am Saturday morning March 28th with the “Morehart Murphy Team Time Trial.” Four-person collegiate teams and individual racers will start the intersection of River Road and CR 213 (La Posta) at one-minute intervals, finishing 13 miles later on La Posta just before Highway 550. An Individual Time Trail will be offered to citizen racers. Races will finish around 10:00am.

The “Durango Performance Center Criterium” has a new on campus venue for 2015 starting at 11:30am.  The flat .7-mile course starts in front of Pine Hall on Skyhawk Ave, turns right onto Rim Drive then right onto 8th Ave., right onto Talon Dr. next to the Concert Hall and a final right turn back onto Skyhawk to the finish. Five collegiate and four citizen categories will speed around the course for varying amounts of time based on experience and ability. The action will be fast and fun! Racing concludes at 6pm.

Racing concludes on Sunday March 29 with the grueling “Coca-Cola Road Race,” starting at 8:00am on Rim Drive in front of the Education Business Hall. Travelling clockwise on Rim Dr. the course turns left on North Rim Drive (CR239) passing Hillcrest Golf Course then right on North College, through the roundabout, down Goeglein Gulch Road (CR238) and right on East 8th Avenue back to Rim Drive, completing the super tough 5-mile circuit.  The amount of laps will be based on category ranging from 3-9 laps.
